I just changed out my old Radeon R9 280X GPUs for nVidia RTX 2060's. Uninstalled the AMD drivers and installed the GEForce drivers.

I tried some AP27 WUs, but I get this error:

<core_client_version>7.6.22</core_client_version> <![CDATA[ <message> couldn't start app: Input file llr.ini.6.07 missing or invalid: file missing </message> ]]>


I also see this in the BOINC log:
10/23/2019 11:53:52 PM app version refers to missing GPU type ATI 10/23/2019 11:53:52 PM Application uses missing ATI GPU


Is there something I need to do to to complete my switch? Maybe Reset the PrimeGrid Project?

Change your primegrid preferences (from AMD/ATI GPU to Nvidia GPU) for the applicable venues?

Hmm, Resetting the PrimeGrid project didn't help.

I have changed my PG Prefs to Nvidia GPU vs. AMD/ATI. The BOINC log does say "Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA GPU" I know there used to be different WUs for Nvidia and Ati (OpenCL vs. CUDA), but it's not that way now, right? Both types just use OpenCL?

Ummm... you still had it set for AMD/ATI before? That would definitely cause the symptoms you described, except I would have expected it to not send you any tasks at all.

No, it's been set to NVIDIA ever since I changed the cards over. I'd also expect that BOINC wouldn't give tasks to an NVIDIA card if only the ATI box is checked.

I was asking if the WUs are the same or different these days for the two types just out of idle curiosity, really. Even IF Boinc somehow got confused and requested "ATI" tasks for an NVIDIA card, is there really a difference? Is there a difference in the underlying apps for nvidia and ati cards, or is it the same "ap27_2.6_opencl_windows64.exe" for both anyway?

The executables are identical for AP27 and Genefer. Different for PPS-Sieve.

For Genefer, there's also a second file (platform_something.txt) sent with the task that identifies whether the task is destined to run on an AMD or Nvidia GPU, in case the host has both.

Just a thought, but there used to be a problem with the OCL drivers conflicting when both AMD and NVidia cards were installed at the same time (there was a work around where you had to install the drivers in a specific order to get them to work, as I recall). Did you fully uninstall the AMD driver before adding in the NVidia one? If not, you might want to redo this as that may be the problem.

I know there used to be different WUs for Nvidia and Ati (OpenCL vs. CUDA), but it's not that way now, right? Both types just use OpenCL?

All workunits are the same. The platform is established when the job is sent to you (whatever platform you're running). The returned results are identical no matter whether it's CPU, nVidia or AMD, so there's no limitation on what kind of hardware a job can be sent to. The only thing limiting you is that you cannot get a workunit that one of your computers already had. While that might be a problem on a long job like SoB, AP27 jobs run a lot faster and it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks Scott, this ended up solving it.

I had uninstalled the AMD Catalyst package via Add/Remove Programs before installing the nVidia GEForce drivers, but apparently that wasn't enough.

I downloaded and ran the AMD Cleanup Utility, which found and removed more pieces of the old OCL drivers. Rebooted, but still got AP27 computation errors.

So then I did a clean re-install of the nVidia GEForce drivers again, and rebooted one more time. That did the trick.

Bottom line: If you are switching from AMD/ATI to nVidia, use the AMD Cleanup Utility to fully remove AMD Catalyst before installing the nVidia GEForce drivers.

Bottom line: If you are switching from AMD/ATI to nVidia, use the AMD Cleanup Utility to fully remove AMD Catalyst before installing the nVidia GEForce drivers.

Or use DDU - Display Driver Uninstaller.
Works for both nVidia and AMD and is usefull it something goes wrong during updating drivers etc.
